Picked this one up about a year ago. Not sure how long its staying around, but enjoying tinkering with it for the time being.

Remember distinctly the first one I ever saw. I was ten.

Bought and assembled car models of it from Revell and Monogram

Thanks for posting

Love the fact the rear window can be put down to give great air flow through the cabin. Also love the canted headlights and the way the c-pillar slopes backward.

Thanks for the photos. The engine compartment and interior look excellent. The rear window looks like it works. Great to have 50s Lincolns still on the road in such good shape.

Thanks! Yes, everything is pretty tidy on it, save the saggy dash pad. All 7 power windows work, which is good b/c the original owner didn’t opt for A/C!
